So it would be interesting to see how things goes in future but opinion polls are suggesting BJP government in this hilly state.
According to India Today - Axis BJP will come to power with 35 - 43 seats out of total 70 seats.

Top Political Parties in Elections

In upcoming five states election there are some popular national as well as regional parties. In UP and Punjab all political parties will be more focused as number of seats are more and parties like congress bjp , congress and AAP will be looking these election in prospective of 2019 Lok Sabha electios.
political parties fighting in these elections are 
- Bhartiya Janta Party
- Indian National Congress
- Aam Aadmi Party
- Samajwadi Party
- Bahujan Samajwadi Party
- Shiromani Akali dal etc.
  • According to opinion polls  vote percentage of BJP and Narenddra modi has increased by 2 % in Uttar- Pradesh, BJP vote percentage is now 33 % according to opinion polls which was earlier 31 %.Other reason for failure of Samajwadi party and Akhilesh Yadav is there family fight and fight for symbol. There is no doubt , that family fight can take power from SP's hands, 
Akhilesh and Mulayam singh yadav are still fighting for party and symbol. This looks that there is no hope of compromise in party and according to sources , Akhilesh Yadav Samajwadi group is ready to fight with other party symbol also.
  • In Punjab , Amrinder singh is first choice of voters as a chief minister of punjab . But AAP spokesman Sanjay singh said that they going to create history in Punjab also and will win more than 100 seats in Punjab. AAP is also unpredictable party in Indian Politics and it will not be strange if they will win Punjab elections,
  • In Uttrakhand and Goa according to opinion polls as well as situation suggests, Bhartiya janta party is going to make their government. Congress and AAP can give good fight in states Uttrakhand and Goa respectively, 
Elections are always unpredictable and that had been seen in past during election of 2014 Loksabha, Maharashtra, Haryana, Bihar as well as Chattisgarh. but this is sure that these elections going to be very interesting.

2014 : Loksabha election, Maharashtra, Haryana, jharkhand , Jammu and Kashmir (lost all election)

2012 : Uttrakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Manipur
2013 : Karnataka, Mizoram, Meghalaya
2015 : Bihar with rjd and jdu
2016 : Pudducherry

This time congress in just himachal , manipur, mizoram, uttrakhand, karnataka. Only 7% of Indian population lives in congress ruling states.
Being a oldest party in India , now only in 7% is real concern for rahul Gandhi and congress party. 

Coming UP and punjab election big challenge for Rahul Gandhi

Now in 2016 there is no more elections left. But 2017 will be a big challenge for Rahul Gandhi and congress party.
In 2017 all parties will be in action in Punjab , Himachal, UP, Manipur , Goa and gujrat.
In gujrat and Goa elections will be in the end of year but UP and Punjab elections will be biggest challenge for Rahul Gandhi.
